Dear New York,

I am honored to invite you to Lincoln Center Presents, a vision for year-round programming at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts that prioritizes an expansive view of artistic excellence and complements existing programs across the Lincoln Center campus and the civic life of the city at large. We are dedicated to making the arts available to the widest possible audience and the majority of programs are either FREE or Choose-What-You-Pay.

With the opening of the new David Geffen Hall this past October, we are reimagining the possibilities of a concert hall and what it means to be a public venue, for all New Yorkers. This season, you will see many collaborations and partnerships that create exciting collisions that go beyond genre and celebrate and reflect the intersectionalities and the vibrancy of the city itself. We are also championing new art forms that have traditionally not had much presence on our campus, changing perceptions of what, and more importantly, who, belongs in a concert hall.

As a lover of a variety of different art forms and a believer in the power of the arts, I knew I wanted to fill our campus with an incredible array of art that is in continual conversation with the moment and responsive to the needs of the community. Working closely with a multitude of artistic curators—including our two artists-in-residence, poet Mahogany L. Browne, and designer Mimi Lien—we are putting together events that are filled with a range of interdisciplinary works from diverse voices, that break down traditional silos and deepen artistic and civic connections.

Just as we encourage our artists to make themselves at home and become an intrinsic part of our community, we encourage the same of you, our audiences. Please join us as we break new ground and bring our constituents and partners across the city together in new ways. We look forward to welcoming you indoors, safely, and with your whole selves, to experience the power of the live performing arts.
